Re: RouterOS 6.27 Bug - address-list find not working

I have a RB750G running 6.27 using address-list just fine.

Troubleshoot your script. Most likely, you used something that they have tightened up the rules on and is now considered not correct to use.

EDIT:

Opps - I did not use the find command.

Re: The Menus in simple queue is getting removed

Don't close the queue window.
Close with the exit on the left.
When you open again the queue setup will be as you changed it.

If you close the queue window and exit, the queue window will go back to the default settings.

Re: deny mobile user access to internet

Turn off DHCP. They would have to type in all the required access for internet.

or

Firewall filter rule to drop all address in a drop address list (all DHCP).

or
